Dr. Wayand

Dr. John Wayand, DMD

Dr. Wayand hails from the nearby city of Raleigh, NC. As the oldest of seven children, Dr. Wayand brings both an inherent experience in caring for others, as well as the ability to enjoy treating all ages. Dr. Wayand received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences from North Carolina State University and continued his career in higher education at the Dental College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Since then, Dr. Wayand has lived in Atlanta, Philadelphia and now is happy to call Richmond his home. Dr. Wayand enjoys taking a thoughtfully planned and comprehensive approach to dentistry. His favorite skills to utilize at the office are esthetic cases where he can create a brighter, more aesthetically pleasing smile; as well as taking care of any large painful infections by endodontic procedures known more commonly as root canal therapy.

When he’s not in the office, Dr. Wayand loves to go hiking with his black Labrador Murph and pug Liv, or cooking up a new recipe. He is happiest exploring the foodie scene in Richmond since he has an avid interest in trying all types of cuisine. He also has a passion for photography and painting, which were the two outlets that led him to explore his creative side through dentistry. Dr. Wayand utilizes this creativity in meeting each patient’s individual needs through his robust experience. Please feel free to come by and get to know how he can be of service to you!
